Mr. Heater hose assembly. Need Teflon tape?

5 posts in this topic

Hey quys got a quick question for ya. I just purchased the hose to hook my Mr. Heater/Cooker to a 11lb LP tank. I was planning on just tightening both ends on and be done with it. My buddy says I need to put teflon tape on connections. I looked in at the packaging the hose came in and could not find anything about teflon tape. I always thought since the 1lb tank just screws on the hose would be the same way. Also wouldn't the LP breakdown the teflon tape anyways creating more problems? Did you guys use teflon tape?

Thanks in advance. I don't want my FT Yukon to turn into a propane fueled spud gun with ME being the spud tomorrow on the ice:)!!!!

I have never used Teflon tape on any of the propane fittings I have screwed together. Now is this right, I do not know, but i have never had a leak issue yet in 20 years of putting togther Mr. heater stuff and other propane stuff.

Good luck..

Only if you've stripped the threads...which in most cases I avoid using them.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
